A Quiet Weekend In

After work yesterday (library), I decided to stay in for the weekend. I was planning on skating yesterday earlier in the week, but I was feeling tired. My goal for this year is not to push myself when I need rest. I’m also an introvert and I have found that when I over extend myself by constantly running, I become a mean person. I need me time to recharge.

I had lunch at Panera and went shopping at Trader Joe’s. Before Trader Joe’s, I stopped into Kabob Cafe and found that the Turkish Delight is gluten free! They also have chick pea flour cookies, but I could only afford the Turkish Delight. The cashier understood, she stated they have the cookies all the time and next week I’ll go back to get them. Yesterday made up for my snafu in Philadelphia on Friday night.

Dad lit the fireplace last night and we all enjoyed the fire. It was indeed very peaceful and it was nice to sit in front of the fire and read.

Sundays in 2019 will be my day of rest. I want to designate a day where I don’t spend any money and I think Sunday is a great day since I don’t have either jobs. That will also be my cleaning day. We had snow this morning and I managed to get to the playground. I had fun playing in the snow. 🙂

I’m calling it an evening to watch 60 Minutes and (hopefully) scrapbook! Have a great Sunday evening.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    It seems like you have a solid plan, dear friend. When you feel yourself becoming overextended, slow down the pace, don’t try to do so much, and enjoy restful days by the fire, take a leisurely stroll in the brisk cold air, or do some cleaning, organizing or scrapbooking. Sunday is a good day to designate for that purpose.

    Mrs. Shady and I dined at Panera a few days after Christmas and we also recently went shopping at Trader Joe’s. I’m glad you stopped into the Kabob Cafe for a gluten free meal, and I know you will be going back for those cookies. I love the cozy fireplace pictures and the snow covered landscape there in S.E. PA. I miss that white stuff!

    Get some rest and have a safe and happy week ahead, dear friend JM!
